Based upon long experience, Andritz have developed a modular design for the small hydro power range. The range is comprised of Axial, Francis and Pelton turbines which covers a head range of 1 to 1,000 meters.
Modular design consists of building a complete unit by a mechanical assembly of standardized components. The modular design combines the advantages of standardized components and the flexibility of tailor-made design remaining highly competitive with respect to high performances, operating reliability, short delivery time and low total investment cost.
